This is a special place beginning with its history. Nelson Mandela lived here for a time and later the building was remodeled into an amazing hotel. It is surrounded by large manicured grounds with interesting sculptures in various places.
The rooms are extremely well furnished with no detail left untended to. Service is excellent with friendly and courteous staff.
And it is the first luxurious hotel I've seen that doesn't have a gift shop, a relief for me. But not to worry, the staff will quickly arrange a car to take you to a nearby major shopping mall.
Sunday brunch is was excellent, with a buffet of starters, then main courses ordered off the menu. But the finale is the desert assortment, an amazing array of items.
The Saxon is a special treat.
